D of E Licenced Organisation Status

We are very proud to have accepted our Licensed Organisation certificate for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award at St James’s Palace last week. A large proportion of our girls undertake the challenge of the Awards, which continue to be highly valued by universities and employers. Developing self-knowledge, learning new skills and giving to others are at the heart of the kind of education St Mary’s provides and the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award continues to complement our aim of developing confident, well-rounded young women.

Also at the Palace event were two Old Girls who were present to receive their Gold qualification.
